In compliance with the Student Right-to-Know and Cam­pus Security Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-542), it is the policy of Sierra College to make available its completion and trans­fer rates to all cur­rent and pro­spec­tive stu­dents. Be­gin­ning in Fall 2013, a cohort of all certificate-, degree-, and transfer-seek­ing first-time, full-time stu­dents were tracked over a three-year period. Their com­ple­tion and transfer rates are list­ed be­low. These rates do not rep­re­sent the suc­cess rates of the entire stu­dent pop­u­la­tion at Si­er­ra Col­lege nor do they ac­count for student out­comes oc­cur­ring af­ter this three-year track­ing period.

Based upon the cohort defined above, 31.76% at­tained a certificate, degree, or became ‘transfer-prepared’ dur­ing a three-year period from Fall 2013 to Spring 2016. Students who have com­plet­ed 60 trans­fer­able units with a GPA of 2.0 or better are considered ‘transfer prepared’.

Based upon the cohort defined above, 12.81% trans­ferred to another postsecondary institution prior to at­tain­ing a degree, certificate, or becoming ‘trans­fer prepared’ dur­ing a five se­mes­ter pe­ri­od from Spring 2014 to Spring 2016.
